What's going on?

I discovered today that my Clare de Lune clematis, looks like it is dieing!! This is the second year for it, I have another clematis on the other side of the trellis that is doing fine. Can anyone tell me what might be going on?

Full shot


Stems at ground level

Thank you

It's very common for type 2 clematis to loose some of their bottom leaves. It looks bad but your clematis isn't dying. Just remove the brown leaves and make sure it is getting enough water.

Almost all of my Type IIs do that.
